Sandwich lovers, rejoice! Pret A Manger's festive menu 2023 launches today.
Back for this year are the Christmas Lunch Sandwich and the Christmas Lunch Baguette, made with British turkey, a port and orange cranberry sauce (fancy), herby pork stuffing, spinach leaves, mayo and crispy onions.
The Nut Roast Sandwich is also making a comeback this year with its filling of roasted herby butternut squash, rocket and Christmas pesto made with chestnuts, pine nuts and rosemary, finished with Pret’s vegan sage mayo, caramelised pecans, and crispy onions.
The classic flavour combo Brie and Cranberry Baguette is also returning this year, as well as the Pigs in Blankets Hot Roll featuring hand-rolled British pork sausages wrapped in streaky bacon, served in a hot ciabatta roll with caramelised onion chutney and mustard mayo.
The Boxing Day Toastie is also back for 2023, and features the classic mature cheddar cheese, British turkey, pulled British ham, herby pork stuffing and caramelised onion chutney and sage mayo.
Let's move on to the brand-new bits, shall we?
The Ham Hock & Festive Sprouts Macaroni Cheese is a new hot dish for this year, celebrating the humble sprout with pulled ham hock, Italian matured cheese, béchamel sauce and Tubetti Rigati pasta.
Also new for this year is the Salmon, Crayfish and Lemon Mayo Rye Roll. Inspired by Christmas seafood starters, this sarnie contains wild crayfish and Scottish smoked salmon with lemon mayonnaise, topped with cucumber slices, a dab of butter, rocket, and dill, all served in its barley and rye roll.
Now, it wouldn't be Christmas without a festive hot drink or two, would it?
New for this year are three new hot drink flavours, including a Salted Caramel Latte, Gingerbread Latte and Merry Berry Hot Chocolate, which features raspberry syrup topped with whipped cream and dried raspberry crumbs.
Sweet treats are on the agenda too, with a brand new Coffee Caramel Slice, which layers caramel with Pret’s 100% organic coffee and white chocolate on a dark chocolate shortbread base. And the new Festive Florentine Slice, which sees mincemeat on a crumbly shortcake base topped with fresh flaked almonds. If cookies are more your thing, then you'll be a fan of the new Chocolate S’mores Cookie, a freshly baked chocolate cookie with melted marshmallows and generous milk chocolate chunks that's giving us campfire vibes.
As for returning favourites, the Christmas Tiffin, Mince Pie, Melvin the Melting Snowman Gingerbread Cookie will all be coming back to a Pret near you this year.
Plus, if you just can't get enough of Pret's classic crispy onions, you'll be able to get your hands on a mini tin absolutely free through Pret’s Shopify channel. There are only limited amounts available, so you'll have to be fast if you want to get your hands on the crunch.
It's not just classic festive flavours returning this year for the brand, as they'll also be donating 50p from the sale of Pret’s most popular Christmas items - Christmas Lunch Sandwich and Nut Roast sandwich - will be donated directly to The Pret Foundation. The charity aims to break the cycle of homelessness, hunger, and poverty, and works with charities and shelters in communities.
